Default Need a piston

Working on a 38 21 stud engine .060 over 4 ring dome pistons,one has a burned spot in ring gland,,,, have searched the adds and no one has one but did find a set of ring but no piston so thought I would ask here if someone has one stacked away
Pm me if you have one,,,Thanks
One other question,oil pump did not have gasket on the plate over gears,have seen them with and without,do I put one on??? I think Iíve always put them on,,

Was a common fix to tighten the axial play on the pumps.
Measure what you have adding a gasket may lower the performance of the pump.

I have a piston of the 3 ring design, about a hundred gram difference in weight vs the 4 ring.
